The new update will come with a lot of improvements, bug fixes and as well the support for animated stickers.

Note that animated stickers are different from GIFs. Animated stickers plays throughout while GIFs stops after some seconds.


According to WABetainfo, the new feature which is still under development for the three platforms isn't' available yet for users to see how it works. However, when it does arrive, the animated stickers will be available in WhatsApp sticker packs and will need to be downloaded just as other stickers are downloaded before use.



WABetainfo said that WhatsApp began to test something similar to this in the past but later abandoned it. This time, if this animated stickers feature makes it out of the test state, it will have support for third party stickers as well.

For now, there's no word on when the feature will be made available though WABetainfo noted in their blog post that the feature works very well when they tested it.
